We Did It!

The prayers of a faithful people have been answered today on the Feast of the Sacred Heart of Jesus. Roe vs Wade has been overturned. It is now up to the states to decide the question of abortion and at last count there are fourteen states that have outlawed abortion including Texas, Oklahoma, Louisiana andContinue reading “We Did It!”

Stash Diving Again

Somewhere in all of this stuff there is a ziplock bag with left-over yarn from my knitted socks. I can see it quite plainly in my mind’s eye but as yet I haven’t managed to unearth the blooming thing! I always keep the left-over yarn in case I need to mend a pair of socksContinue reading “Stash Diving Again”

It Was A Dark And Stormy Night…

We were both enjoying a good night’s sleep when CRASH! BOOM! CRACK! The whole house shook from a lightening strike east of us. Yep. That got our attention. And was repeated at irregular intervals for over an hour. Fortunately we never lost power. Needless to say, we had a late morning. The sky is partlyContinue reading “It Was A Dark And Stormy Night…”

Back to Spring Weather

We’ve had a front come through our area in NE Texas and it’s now in the 60’s after being in the 90’s for over a week. Tonight it will be in the mid 50’s. Now that’s more like it! Brad made a run to town for take away from Frank & Lola’s Bohemian Tacos. TheirContinue reading “Back to Spring Weather”

Two Down, One to Go

I’ve been busy knitting the past few days and managed to finish the second kitchen hand towel in the set of three. It’s easy to lose track of the pattern if I don’t pay attention and more than once I’ve gotten engrossed in something on TV and had to backtrack and correct my mistake. IContinue reading “Two Down, One to Go”

Trying To Be Creative

I’ve been thinking about my next project. I really need a summer weight cardigan. I’ve been through these bins several times and I don’t have enough of the same, or suitable yarn, for the project. I’ve thought about trying to combine different yarns but nothing really works for me so far and I’m determined NOTContinue reading “Trying To Be Creative”

Business As Usual

It’s been a windy day, high in the lower 60’s, with partly cloudy skies. All the cleaning has caught up to me and I’ve been goofing off all day, not having slept well last night. No big deal. I’ll sleep fine tonight. It used to bug me when I had a sleepless night, then IContinue reading “Business As Usual”

Good Morning, Sunshine

For the second morning in a row I am up earlier than usual, before 7:00 am this time. I’ve been making sure I get my liquid magnesium drops in water at bedtime along with melatonin and it seems to be making a difference. Brad got up about forty-five minutes after I did. We’ve had coffeeContinue reading “Good Morning, Sunshine”

Here We Go Again!

It’s the beginning of the second week of March and the weather has been warm and sunny. So, of course we have a chance of snow later in the week! I really thought we were past that, and it might miss us yet. You just never know with Texas weather. In any case, there isn’tContinue reading “Here We Go Again!”

Happy Texas Independence Day, Ya’ll

It’s a gorgeous, sunny morning in NE Texas. The forecast was for the low 40’s…we woke up to 35°…had a hunch that it would be best to put the heat pump on emergency before going to bed. Turns out we were right! I didn’t sleep well last night, gave up about 3 am and wentContinue reading “Happy Texas Independence Day, Ya’ll”
